You cannot have USER DEFINED expense categories, you have to use the predefined/seeded expense categories only.
The seeded categories are stored in the payables lookup OIE_EXPENSE_CATEGORY which has Access Level of System, hence one cannot modify/add more lookup values under it. (Navigation for the lookup is Setup > Lookups > Payables)
Moreover any type of expenditure which a organization has can be mapped under the seeded categories provided..
I believe this restriction is due to the built in policy validation configuration based on expense category.
Oracle also states, any modification to the OIE_EXPENSE_CATEGORY would be treated as CUSTOMIZATION, hence it would not be supported.
